    Question Please Help

    I am starting to quilt my table runner, (you know the flower power one I showed few threads back) and I want to SID should I or can I run a stitch all the way around the edges of the sandwich? And were should I start with the SID lengthwise or crosswise?
    Does this make any sense?

    Thanks for any info.

    The best thing to do is to stabilise the middle by stitching the longest seam right down the middle first, then do the ones either side and keep going working out. When you've done the lengthwise ones, do the one in the middle across the width and work out again.

    That should minimise wrinkles by moving all the spare fabric away from the middle to the edges. When you've done all the length and width ones, you can go all the way around the outside.

    A basic rule with quilting is to start in the middle and work your way out. Hope that helps x
